EN: Hello everybody! I hope you are all good and enjoying summer! I have not posted here for a while, but that doesn’t mean I wasn’t sewing. Actually, I have even managed to make my sister sew more (yes, that is my cruel plan I am constantly working on). Anyway, she is really talented, so I wish she would like to spend more time practicing. Here I proudly present this super long cardigan she made! Isn’t it just a great item for spicing up some really casual summer outfits? It was all her idea and she made it by herself, I just gave her a piece of advice here and there.

I made this watermelon fringe bag for her. This printed fabric is so beautiful and inspiring. I wanted to put the fringes because my sister is the right person to wear anything with fringes (bohemian style just suits her perfectly, doesn’t it?!) and I am crazy about them, too, even if I don’t have them on me often. Also, I added this detail of a watermelon print. I made it by using the black fabric color and a potato. Who says you cannot turn potatoes into watermelons! Just slice a piece of potato, dip it into color and stamp on a fabric. With the little brush paint the seeds afterwards. Iron when the color is completely dry. Easy as that! How do you like the design of the bag? The string can be removed so the bag could be worn also as a clutch.

Hope you liked this post. Thanks for reding! Love, Helen

SR: Zdravo svima! Nadam se da ste dobro i da uživate u letu! Iako nisam dugo ništa ovde postavljala, to ne znači da nisam bila vredna i da ništa nisam šila. Naprotiv, a čak sam i uspela da nagovorim moju sestru da više šije. Inače, to je  moj opaki plan na kome uporno radim zato što je ona veoma talentovana i volela bih kada bi htela da odvoji više vremena da vežba. U svakom slučaju, ponosno vam predstavljam ovaj veoma dugi kardigan (ne postoji srpska reč za to, je l da?) koji je savršeno pogodan da se ukombinuje sa jednostavnom letnjom odećom i da malo začini stvari. To je bila njena ideja i sve je sama uradila, a ja sam joj samo dala poneki savet.

Moj doprinos je torbica koju sam sašila za nju. Plavi print ovog dekor platna je veoma lep i inspirativan. Htela sam da dodam rese jer je moja sestra prava osoba da nosi sve sa resama, jer joj taj stil baš dorbo stoji, a i ja ih volim iako ih retko nosim. Takođe sam napravila i ovaj detalj crno belog printa uz pomoć krompira i farbe za tekstil. Ko kaže da ne možete da pretvorite krompir u lubenicu?! Samo isecite odgovarajuće parče krompira, umočite ga u boju i ispečatirajte platno. Posle tankom četkicom doslikajte semenke i koru. Kada se farba skroz osuči, ispeglajte, i to je to! Kako vam se dopada dizajn torbe?

Hvala vam što pratitie moj rad!
